Black Minds Matter: Supporting the Educational Success of Black Children in California
Education Trust-West
This report examines how the nearly 1 million Black youth in California are faring from preschool through college and reveals the distressing disparities that newly released state and national data show persist at all levels of their educational journey. The report also highlights the groundbreaking efforts underway to reverse these trends in California and close achievement and opportunity gaps for African American students. The report calls on policymakers, education leaders, and all Californians to prioritize the equity-based changes that California's Black students deserve and for which they have been waiting for far too long. If we believe California is a land of opportunity, we must acknowledge that the current rate of progress we see is unacceptable.
